  1. My council is listed in 5.0 as giving a substantial chunk in property. I really wonder what that is. They've been silent about it so far, but I'm scared.
  2. Update: The Boy's Troop Committee met tonight and invited me as a guest to speak. Long story short, the committee voted unanimously to move forward with forming a Girl's Troop and welcomed me as the founding Scoutmaster. I'm going to be joining the Boy's Troop as an ASM as soon as my application is approved. The Committee feels confident they can get 5+ girls at bridging in March, but they are going to start marketing, and if they can get 5 girls sooner, we'll go ahead.

I think we are going to press hard to get two female volunteers registered, so we can maintain 2-deep and 1-female in the event one adult can't participate in an activity.
  6. Hello everyone! I was a youth scouter (aged out at Life) and active in OA in the early '90s. My son and daughter are currently Life and Tenderfoot Scouts. I steadfastly avoided adult participation in my children's units, because both of them struggled to interact with other youth and adults without constant reassurance and validation from myself or my wife.
